Our DIY Transom window in the entryway idea that I shared last month on Painting The Dining Room is becoming a reality!
In my last post I shared my inspiration for a transom window with no clue how to go about finding the window.
If you follow me on Facebook, you already know that:
I SAID: Let’s go to the ReStore and look for a transom window for the entryway project….
HE SAID: The parking lot is empty…this does not look good.
Where we found a beautiful mini-french door with beveled glass. My idea was to cut it down a few panes and use it horizontally for our DIY Transom Window on the top half of our entryway.
Here’s a little peek at our entryway mess in progress. It’s nowhere near what we intend it to be yet, but it’s taking shape.
HE doesn’t know it yet so keep it quiet.
I keep thinking about the mini-french door. We saw a bunch of them in the back of the store not out on the floor yet. I can’t get them out of my head and want to go back and buy them all. This door was only $60.00 and a great deal instead of buying or special ordering a transom window.
What would you do with a few extra mini-french doors?
We took out one of the window panes to cut it down to 3 panes. I’m keeping the left over framed pane to turn into a picture frame. I’m sure I can think of something to do with the single piece of beveled glass.
This is our original inspiration to give you the idea of where we are headed. I had the thought to change the top to be a transom window. We still have the bottom half to build. Then paint the room. Paint the half-wall entryway. Add two lights and get a new front door.
That’s what Housekaboodle has been up to in the background.
